Digitmovies continues its journey in the Italian Police, publishing for the first time on CD in full stereo the OST by Franco Micalizzi for "Delitto a Porta Romana" directed in 1980 by Bruno Corbucci and starring Tomas Milian, Bombolo, Olimpia Di Nardo , Nerina Montagnani, Leo Cavero, Marina Frajese, Elio Crovetto, Franco Diogene, Elisabetta Odino, Aldo Ralli, Lino Patruno, Tony Scarf, Jimmy il fenomeno, Massimo Vanni. A petty thief called Venticello (Bombolo) is raiding a house in Milan Porta Romana when the owner's wife and her lover arrive. Venticello is hiding under a bed, on which, as well as the embrace, the murder of the woman takes place. The unfortunate thief can see a scar on the heel of the murderer, but in following flight he is stopped and charged with murder. The marshal Nico Giraldi (Milian), a friend of the suspect and awaiting the birth of his firstborn, is called to Milan to investigate the case, temporarily leaving his wife in Rome (Di Nardo), waiting to give birth, and the deaf grandmother (Montagnani). After a series of events, including a chase in the streets of Milan, Nico is finally able to find the killer.
"Crime in Porta Romana" is the seventh adventure of Nico Giraldi, the character created by Mario Amendola and Bruno Corbucci and played 11 times on the screen, from 1976 to 1984, by actor Cuban Tomas Milian. Like the previous films and the subsequent "Delitto a Porta Romana" is a successful mix between the detective and the Italian comedy genres. "Nico Giraldi"'s saga began in 1976 with the film, directed by Bruno Corbucci, "Squadra antiscippo" which was followed by another 4 films with the word "Squadra" in the original title (Antifurto, Antitruffa, Antimafia, Antigangster). Once all the "Squadra" for the sixth adventure of the Roman cop the title was changed to "Assassinio sul Tevere", which was followed by another 5 films with the word "Delitto" in the title (...a Porta Romana, al ristorante cinese, sull'autostrada, in formula uno, al Blue Gay). In the mid 80's Tomas Milian began to feel locked into character, also this kind of film began to be replaced by a new "copyright" comedy. After 11 films and 9 years Milian bade farewell to the nice Commissioner "Giraldi" who had given him the attention and affection of the public.
To achieve our CD (duration 36:46) under the supervision of the composer himself, we were able to access the stereo master tapes of the original recording session. Franco Micalizzi has written a main theme in Funky style that alternates with a popular motif for the protagonist that the author develops and resumes as a relentless tarantella symphonic used for wild police chases. Do not miss out on the atmosphere of mystery and suspense typical of the genre.
